I have the below table - when I use the below insert - and then set a full text index - it is apparent, it is just storing the file name or something as when I check the indexed words - only the document name is indexed - so my question is - when trying to use filestream and varbinary(max) - is the simple example below correct?

CREATE TABLE cptDocuments(
  [docID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
  [document] varbinary(max) FILESTREAM NULL,
  [docExtension] varchar(30),
  [RowGuid] UNIQUEIDENTIFIER NOT NULL  ROWGUIDCOL UNIQUE DEFAULT NEWID(),
CONSTRAINT [PK_cptDocuments_docID] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
  [docID] ASC
) WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS  = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO

INSERT INTO cptDocuments(Document, [docExtension]  )
VALUES (
CAST('C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PDE\CPTAssistant\Archives\Updated Reporting Instruction for Hydration Infusion (Code 90760).htm' as varbinary(max))
,'.htm'
)

Short answer, no.  

INSERT INTO cptDocuments(Document)
    SELECT *
    FROM OpenRowSet(BULK N'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PDE\CPT....', SINGLE_BLOB) AS Document

You can also drop it into a variable thusly:

DECLARE @mybinary VARBINARY(MAX)
SELECT @mybinary = BulkColumn
FROM OPENROWSET(BULK N'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PDE\CPT....', SINGLE_BLOB) AS Document

And then insert that.

is there a way - say after I do that or during that - to put in a few other variables - such as 'file name here.htm' and '.htm' - the file name and the extension - as part of that insert statement in openrowset?

Absolutely.  Its particularly clear with the second example, since you can insert your extensions PLUS the variable:

INSERT INTO MyTable (ExtensionColumn, BinaryColumn) VALUES ('.htm', @myBinary)


But with the first example, that "SELECT *" only returns one column (BulkColumn).  You could also:
"SELECT *, '.htm' as extension"
if you like.  

If I'd been using both my braincells I would have used BulkColumn in both examples.
